Result of AGM


FD (AIM:FDP.L, ESM:FDP.I) announces that its Annual General Meeting was held earlier today at its headquarters, 3 Canal Court, Newry, County Down BT35 6BP.


At the AGM all resolutions were duly passed. It was clarified that share options exercised by an executive director during the year to 28 February 2017 were issued based on the achievement of growth in earnings per share. In respect of executive director share option awards granted during the year to 28 February 2017, the Remuneration Committee decided that challenging total shareholder return targets of between 50% and 100% should instead be applied. The Committee decided that taken together with the short term bonus targets of growth in revenue, profitability and earnings per share, this structure appropriately aligns the interests of the executive director and other shareholders.
